    Nephrite Jade Bowl. This bowl is carved from nephrite. Nephrite crystals typically are fibrous and are interwoven to produce a tough rock. From as early as 1000 B.C. the Chinese were making weapons and ornaments from a green stone they called yu, now known in the West as nephrite. This bowl is 9 cm (3.5 in) tall.

    Jadeitite / Jade, the "gemstone" mined from subduction zones, is really two types of metamorphic rock: nephrite and the rarer jadeitite (shown here). Jade is rare because it forms only along faults deep within active subduction zones. Windows have been polished on this sample to show the rock’s true colors.
